Irrigal is the name given to a system of aluminium irrigation tubing and accessories manufactured by Almin Metal Industries. For over thirty years Irrigal has proven itself in the field as an effective solution for a range of irrigation applications.
Irrigal may be used for irrigating the following:
• Soya beans
• in fact almost anything
It can be used anywhere and is not confined to flat topographical locations.
It can be easily deployed on sloping fields where other systems like centre pivot systems are unable to operate.
Irrigal is lighter than steel but has the same tensile characteristics, simplifying ease of handling and assembly with resultant savings on labour and time.
Non-corrosive and UV resistant
Aluminium is corrosion resistant and is unaffected by levels of ultra violet penetration because of this, Irrigal never loses its intrinsic value and is therefore the lowest life-cycle cost solution to irrigation investment.
Smooth bore increases efficiency
Irrigal tubing’s natural smoothness maintains pumping efficiency.
Irrigal tubing may be repaired in the field without incurring heavy costs. By using modern adhesives or T.I.G. welding, farmers can carry out repairs on the spot.
Irrigal is available in standard lengths of 6 metres and 9 metres with respective outside diameters and wall thicknesses
